The FUTURE is SCI-FI

What's this thread about? Well, about the best genre in existence...

SCIENCE FICTION


Sci-Fi fans are in for a treat for the next upcoming months and years, just let me give you a small glimpse into the future of upcoming scifi titles:


2021:

HALO INFINITE



Offers: An epic campaign with open-world elements, a multiplayer ARENA and sandbox based shooter, + Custom Worlds (Forgemode in 2022) aswell as coop campaign mode (2022)

2022:

STARFIELD


An epic open-world sci-fi singleplayer rpg with hundreds if not thousands of hours of possible content. Join several factions, choose your character background and engage with a world like never seen before. With the return of more rpg-focused mechanics and a completely overhauled engine this is a must for every science fiction nerd.

THE CALLISTO PROTOCOL



With no set date yet this game is expected to come out in 2022, a third person survival horror game by the makers of Dead Space Franchise.


DEAD SPACE REMAKE



Scifi AND horrorgame fans will have a really great time next year because Dead Space Remake is set to release at the end of 2022. Ready to go back on board of the USG Ishimura?


2023:

SQUADRON 42


Yes! The long awaited Squadron 42 (Chapter 1) developed by Cloud Imperium Games (Star Citizen) will finally make its debut end of 2023. Next year (2022) Chris Roberts will move to UK to oversee the last stages of development of potentially one of the most expensive single player scifi game ever. A true spirital successor to the Wing Commander series!

2024:

MASS EFFECT 5


The story of Mass Effect continues! Not much is known about Mass Effect's next installment other than that its set after the events of Mass Effect 3 and Andromeda. Will this game be the final nail in the coffin for the Mass Effect series or will it be the return of the king? We'll find out.


Any other potential titles ive missed feel free to post them.

WE. LOVE. SCI-FI.

Horizon sequel is sci fi too, probably even more scifi than the first game if the plot goes how i expect...

Might as well start it off with The Ascent this July.



In addition to the fantastic graphics and gameplay, the star of the show is the interesting lore and detailed world building. Multiple new alien races that are all interesting and layered, on par with anything I saw in Mass Effect world building. Really different take on the future as well, with total corporate dominance and extreme inequality being the norm, rather than the more utopian Mass Effect / Star Trek version. People are still sleeping on this game for some reason I will never understand. The game's story sets it up for an interesting sequel as well and further world building.

Faark is squadron 42 still that far away, I backed it way back when I was a young boy just wanting a wing commander type game again. I still get the emails but i gave up reading them when I had my mid life crisis. Imagine if I bought 30 bucks worth of bitcoin instead, I wouldn't need to be selling photos of my feet on onlyfans.

Curious to see how calisto project turns out, thats made by the guy who made (or started to anyway) dayz or something isn't it?

im a bit tired of SCI-FI, I need more PURE FANTASY, EVerything seems to want to mix the two with present day.

i'm actually really looking forward to starfield and callisto protocol. mass effect 5 i'll be careful to excited about for obvious reasons but once we'll see gameplay and characters and everything looks good i probably won't contain my hype. squadron 42 probably won't be out by 2023.
